New Orleans, the Film Photos

When we traveled to New Orleans this past fall, I brought my Canon AE-1 and a couple rolls of film to shoot alongside my DSLR. New Orleans is such a beautiful, old city. Shooting with film there felt really fitting. Also, the only lens I brought for the Canon AE-1 is the 50mm f/1.8, which is so perfect for the French Quarter. If you’ve been on the fence about getting a 50mm prime lens, for a digital or film camera, a trip to New Orleans is a great excuse to take the plunge.

Again, I shot this entire film set with a Canon AE-1 and FD 50mm f/1.8 on Portra 400. I use the FIND lab for my film scans and have been so happy with them.

  1. I’ve been to New Orleans a couple of times and I don’t remember it being this beautiful! Gorgeous pictures – looks like a fun time!!

  2. Rose, you truly have an incredible eye! Your photos capture the city SO well! I love the personality and character that you captured everywhere. The things you chose to focus on are amazing!

  3. I love your photography style! Amazing photos. Im from South Africa and never left or traveled… But New Orleans looks amazing and so rustic. Great post!

  4. You’re making me so homesick! NO isn’t exactly like Charleston, SC, but they’re close relations. You’re also making me want to get my dad’s film SLR from my mom’s house! I love the feel and these colors have.

    1. I’m sure the architecture in New Orleans is much like the architecture in Charleston! You really need to pick up your dad’s film SLR sometime. Shooting with the AE-1 has been so much fun. I really love the look and the colors you can produce with Portra 400.
